Hyderabad, May 28 (IANS) Rich tributes were paid to Telugu Desam Party (TDP) founder and former Andhra Pradesh chief minister N.T. Rama Rao Thursday on his 86th birth anniversary.
NTR’s family members, TDP leaders and prominent personalities from different walks of life paid tributes at NTR Ghat on the banks of Hussain Sagar Lake here.
His services to the people were also remembered during ‘Mahanadu’ or the state-level conclave of TDP which concluded here Thursday. Led by TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu, the party paid glowing tributes to the founder.
NTR’s sons Harikrishna, Balakrishna, Ramakrishna, grandsons Junior NTR, Kalyanram, son-in-law Chandrababu Naidu, daughter Bhuwaneswari and other family members paid floral tributes at NTR Ghat.
NTR’s second wife Lakshmi Parvathi separately paid tributes at NTR Ghat.
Interestingly, NTR’s daughter D. Purandeswari took oath as union minister of state on his birth anniversary. A Congress leader, she was re-elected as MP in the recent elections. Her husband D. Venkateswara Rao was also re-elected as state legislator on the Congress party ticket.
NTR, a popular Telugu actor, had launched TDP in 1982 and created a record of sorts by coming to power within nine months, ending the single party rule of Congress.
NTR died in January 1996, a few months after he was unseated from power by his son-in-law Chandrababu Naidu.
